Karin Berardo was one of the first guests on SunCast and had the first 2-part episode, airing way back in Feb 2016 as episodes 10 & 11. She was also the first Female Guest! That interview contains some timeless advice, so I’d love to see you going back in the archives to give it a listen

Karin went on to become CEO of a global cleantech hedge fund, and has a well-established track record leading investment in the sector. She’s also become one of the leading experts on the topic of ESG. Not sure what ESG means? You’re not alone, so I ask Karin to unpack it for us. But there’s so much beyond the very practical advice and insights she provides, so I hope you’ve got your notepad ready!
